The hotel was terrible. I have stayed in inexpensive hotels but this was the worst. It was not the best area of Carbondale. The stairs were dark, poorly lit. The exterior walk to the room was littered with cigarette butts. The doors had been recently painted- but the peepholes were painted over! It looked like someone had tried to break... More

The rooms were clean and I don't know what kind of air freshener they are using but when I walked into the room it smelt really good. I went to eat next door at the Chinese restaurant, I... More

I booked a room at this dump for the weekend because I was visiting my daughter at SIU for parents weekend. All of the other hotels in town were booked solid. My husband arrived an thought at first glance the hotel was condemned! I couldn't believe it was located right next to the most expensive restaurant in the neighborhood! The... More

We should've walked away but we stayed.... the parking lot had random people hanging around it ....there was a note on the building telling us to lock our cars.... The landscaping was unkept and had trash all over it. The stairway leading to the upper levels stunk like garbage. Our room was dirty looking there was stains on the walls... More

We checked in to find a non-working toilet (water was turned off) and no towels in room. We called the front desk and it was remedied quickly. There was a cigarette burn in bed linens and remote for TV didn't work. AC worked well and good water pressure and temp. General atmosphere was dingy and a bit sketchy. Within 5... More

The wash clothes didn't look clean, there was black specs all over it and also on the towels too. The picture frame had broken glass in it. The beds did not even have a fitted sheet on them. It...

Lobby door propped open with rock as the door handle was missing. The check-in attendant was pleasant. We inquired about breakfast and was advised in AM between 7 and 11, in the lobby. The 'manager'(?) came from the back room to say that the control for the AC was on the wall. There appeared to be only 1 other vehicle... More

This place needs to be shut down. It's not motel but a crack house. While walking to our "suite" we passed an open room and it looked like something that would be on Hoarders! There was garbage literally piled to the ceiling. Our "suite" want much better. The placed reeked of urine, a tweeker asked my 16 year old for... More
